9/18 Trump’s ‘Deplorables’ Moment? & Plausible Election Nightmare Scenarios w/ Virgil Texas

September 18, 2020

Virgil Texas (@VirgilTexas), of Chapo Trap House and the Bad Faith podcast (@badfaithpod), joins the MR crew to discuss the news of the week.

On today’s show: Tommy Tuberville has no idea what the Voting Rights Act is.

Virgil Texas (@VirgilTexas), of Chapo Trap House and the Bad Faith podcast (@badfaithpod), joins the MR crew to discuss the news of the week, including: Virgil’s quest to learn who Lev Parnas is. Olivia Troye, VP Pence’s lead staffer on the COVID task force who resigned two months ago, speaks out about Trump’s mishandling of Covid and says Trump was glad he wouldn’t have to shake hands. Will Trump do another stimulus? What’s driving the Democrats’ behavior on the CARES Act, et al? Plausible scenarios in which Trump steals the election.

On the fun half: On voting for Biden in a blue state. NY Taxi Workers: “Brooklyn Bridge is SHUT DOWN! Taxi drivers demand debt forgiveness now!” Krystal Ball: “Dem WAR On Green Party exposes voter suppression hypocrisy.” Dave Rubin complains that Joe Rogan is moving to Austin, TX to vote blue there. Joe Rogan repeats theory that Antifa is setting the fires in OR. FBI Director Christopher Wray testifies at House Homeland Security Committee hearing: “We look at Antifa as more of an ideology or a movement than an organization.” Brian Kilmeade lies that the FBI director testified that Antifa is “a real organization and an ideology.” Anti-mask protester in St George, UT: “When George Floyd was saying ‘I can’t breathe,’ and then he died, and now we’re wearing a mask and we’re saying ‘I can’t breathe,’ but we’re being forced to wear them.” Plus, your IMs.
